3.9/5 rDev +2.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
The brew pours a golden honey color, which is lighter than I expected. Would have thought the beer would have been a darker amber/red color. The head was a soft tan and disappeared after about ten minutes. Sweet, malt smell with some alcohol mixed in for good measure. The sweet malt and molasses flavor hits hard at first. Fortunately, not so sweet that you would think someone snuck a sugar packet into your brew, but sweet enough to add some flavor. Smooth flavor, which doesn't stick around for the party too long. The carbonation was pretty light for a medium bodied beer. I preferred this beer over the Pyramid Winter Warmer, which was a bit too thick for my taste. The 7.2% ABV makes this a potentially dangerous beer, as it goes down really quick and smooth. I think this would be a good brew to bring to a festive party where there is a mixed crowd - likely most folks would appreciate this beer.

4.24/5 rDev +11.6%

A: Darkish ruby amber, almost clear with a dissipated off white head.
S: Initially onions but it soon gives way to floral hops, English in character.
T: In the mouth the hops tastes more American with that classic orange peel profile but overall it drinks like an English bitter. Nice and sharp with an astute malt backbone which leaves a nice aftertaste, again reminiscent of English bitter. Too sharp for a session beer but on cask would be a different story.
M: Sharp and prickly. It's got heartburn written all over it.
O: Very nice. I'd love to try it on cask.
